lady of the united states. she's here at the time warner cable arena. she's now at the podium the right there. you can see she's getting instructions, trying to begin to get a little feel for that stage up there. the teleprompter that will eventually be there. she's going to deliver a major address here, obviously, in charlotte at the democratic national convention tomorrow night. that's what the first lady will be doing. she's been here now, i'm guessing for at least 45 minutes to an hour. she was up in the sky boxes walking around, doing some television interviews, and just beginning to get a flavor for what's going on. this will be a very important address. she's very popular out there. has high, high approval and favorability numbers. there's no doubt about that. and she's going to be under enormous pressure to deliver that big speech tomorrow night. we're here in "the situation room" watching everything that's going on. gloria borger is here. brianna keilar is here. as we see the first lady, this is normal. everybody does this. all the big speakers, at some point, they come in here
last week made no mention of military service members or the war the united states is still fighting in afghanistan. it's a point that tammy duckworth, a war-wounded veteran and illinois candidate for the house of representatives did not miss. >> when it comes to our men and women in harm's way, we have a clear choice on november 6th. last week mitt romney had a chance to show his support for the brave men and women he is seeking to command, but he chose to criticize president obama instead of even uttering the word afghanistan. >> and then there was one card the republicans kept so close to the vest that we never saw or heard any mention of it. it was as if their last two-term president never existed. maybe george w. bush was the invisible guy in the chair, but there was no missing the democrats last two-term president on wednesday night. if there was any card bill clinton was holding, it had to be a spade because he dug right into the accomplishments of the obama administration with a 49-minute workhorse, or donkey, of a speech. in fact, the new york giants could have taken some no
is not going to be one bit -- the london olympics. you did not win that. united states open, it is either about the golf competition or the president's immigration policy. there we go. that was like a boo-hiss on that one. this is back when there were calling each other names. i think they should get back to the fictitious platitudes voters care about. in the poll vault -- it says "jobs" on there. in favor of a mitt romney and -- this is when george bush came out in favor of mitt romney and endorsed mitt romney. now if things do not go well in november, i cannot blame bush. mars mission, why are we spending $2.5 billion on mars when we could be spending it to dig up dirt on mitt romney. with the race tightening, some say you should look for another running mate. i could never do that to barack. [laughter] and this is in the men's room at a restaurant. and obama says, how about seconds? that is my big -- [applause] there we go. it is working now by the way. >> hello. you the art ofow issues that came into 2012, i hope. this is one of the things, i will have to walk over here. i am old and cannot
'm running for a second term as president of the united states. sy told you before and i will tell you again the the path i'm offering is not necessarily going to be quick or easy. because the truth is, it's going to take more than few years to solve challenges that built up over decades. but i can tell you this, virginia, this is america. our problems can be solved and our challenges can be met. we've got the best workers in the world, the best business people and entrepreneurs and scientists and researchers in the world, colleges and universities in the world. there's not a country on earth that wouldn't trade places with the united states of america. so the path i'm offering may be harder, but it leads to a better place. i'm offering a practical, five-point plan to create jobs, and grow the middle class. and rebuild the economy on a stronger foundation. so let me break it down in case you guys missed the convention. just in case. or just in case you only saw michele. number one -- >> that was president obama speaking to a riled up crowd in woodbridge, virginia. michael hastings has been o
're running to be president of the united states. that's how it goes. and a lot of what you're seeing with the romney campaign right now is when you have sort of cascading failure. you're getting people, you know, tommy thompson said yesterday, why am i going down in polls? what do you think? i'm running with mitt romney. that doesn't help. you start having morale problems, and, you know it can all go pretty bad. the point, tim was making about, about romney's strategy, coming in late. that's a pretty perilous strategy. what obama has done is similar to what the clinton campaign did in '96. they spent tons of money early to define bob dole. by the time bob dole got around and campaigned, everybody kind of had a sense he was, you know, newt gingrich's mini me, basically and it was over for him. >> and then to the question of money, tim, you know, if you look like you're in a really tough spot and things could change with the first debate, a lot of people think that could be sort of a turning point in this race, but do your supporters run to you and say, okay. we need to get him out of
it is obvious but it is an input of everything we produce in the united states. food prices rise and health care prices rise and transportation costs rise and that's what we are seeing right now. the idea that we are not having inflation in the economy. they have to get out to the store and start buying things. middle class families, half of the budget goes for health care and food and energy and those are all rising in costings. >> the energy costs right now and particularly gasoline. you expect to see a downward turn in the next couple of months. how critical is that going to be? >> it is interesting if you look back in 1980. one of the things jimmie carter lost that election. they saw the gas price food and that contributed to reagan's victory. it couldn't happen at a worst time. i think the prices are going to fall but back to where they were in july. 3.50 or 3.75 but that is expensive to people and twice as expensive as gasoline costs back in barack obama was elected in 2008. and news of the national debt surging this week as the democrats are set to holding the con. >> i don't think the de
. >> absolutely. notwithstanding what any poll may say, the president of the united states is making this address thursday night we feel very confident that the stadium will be full. and so it's really more about the weather than it is about whether you're going to fill a stadium or not. he is the president, making one of the most important speeches given where we are right now at this time. no doubt that the stadium will be full. certainly you don't want people rained on. >> can i ask about the enthusiasm number. you're my numbers guy. so you're prepared for the whole morning. i'll throw it your way. >> what does that really mean? if you look at the enthusiasm numbers the number foreenthusiasm for mitt romney i think is 51% when they asked republicans and when i do anecdotal questioning, everybody seems to be like -- on this election overall. is it a measure of incumbent that people are less enthusiastic or overall? >> i think it's right that it is a measure of overall. this is not a history-making election in the way that 2008 was history-making election. you knew that there was going to be a n

the president of the united states in that way. let's even take the idea that we are somehow less safe in the world, this kind of discourse that was coming up from condi rice and john mccain. that felt to me the sort of thing that would be policed out of a democratic convention. you're not allowed to show up and say oh, you know, we're much more vulnerable now. we're much less safe than we once were. >> the eastwood presentation, it spoke to the soft birtherism that's been around all week. that barack obama is not one of ours. he just doesn't get it. and the party took on this role as the carrier of the american dream, the carrier of american exceptionalism as though the rest of us are not. and then to say actually he doesn't get it, and implication presuming lots of democrats don't get it. >> i think we're connecting a lot of dots that shouldn't necessarily be connected. >> okay. >> i think clint eastwood very clearly has a history if you look at this man of being one that is civil to people of all different backgrounds. and you know, i just thought that this was an eccentric speech.
